Abstract:Longevity of adult Cydia pomonella (L.) was increased 6–12 days when provided water, a carbohydrate, or a carbohydrate-protein solution. However, providing these foods or the increased longevity did not significantly increase mating, oviposition, or viability of eggs. Regardless of the availability of water or food, moths laid 90% of their eggs within the 1st 5 days of life.
